Native youth – Are there Veteran leaders that have positively impacted your life? Veterans you see leading efforts to improve the lives of Native youth in your community?

This November, the Center for Native American Youth (CNAY) will host a public event at the Aspen Institute. This event is part of a series of public events aimed at raising awareness of issues facing young people in Indian Country, highlighting stories of inspirational Native youth and encouraging new stakeholders and resources to support our youngest First Americans.

This year, CNAY secured a small scholarship fund through the generous support from Secretary Madeleine Albright’s scholarship fund to offset the travel costs of a Native veteran to attend our event. This would include a trip to DC, attendance at our luncheon panel discussion and other events. If you are or know a Veteran who is passionately working to improve the lives of Native children and who is interested in visiting Washington, DC to attend CNAY’s 2014 National Native American Heritage Month event on November 19, please click here to complete and submit a Veteran nomination form. CNAY will notify selected individual(s) and communicate final details as the event date approaches. Individuals may nominate themselves.
